"Laudato Si'" art exhibit looks at beauty, abuse and care of creation

Shepherding Images Studio & Good Shepherd Gallery will host a “Laudato Si’” art exhibit commemorating the anniversary of the pope’s encyclical on care for creation. Sister Glynis Mary McManamon, of the Congregation of Our Lady of Charity of the Good Shepherd, operates the art gallery and will have art in the exhibit, along with five religious sisters and a priest.

The upcoming art show celebrating the one-year anniversary of "Laudato Si'" was in the works even before Sister Glynis Mary McMamanon, RGS, opened Shepherding Images Studio & Good Shepherd Gallery in Ferguson this past November.

For one, when Pope Francis's encyclical came out June 18, she was in France at an international meeting of her community — Our Lady of Charity of the Good Shepherd. "There was such a build-up," she said recently at the gallery on South Florissant Road. "When it came out, there was such an excitement that, really, I think it was in my mind."
